Following a game in which the Raptors led 42-17 at the end of the first quarter en route to a 121-107 win, LeBron was spotted by TMZ pulling up to Diddy's 49th birthday party in a Rolls Royce with his wife Savannah.
The Raptors have also garnered attention on the National Basketball Association championship odds during their hot start, moving past the Lakers and Houston Rockets to trail only the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics as a +900 wager on those National Basketball Association futures.
Lakers president Magic Johnson met with Walton last Tuesday about the team's slow start, but Johnson told the Los Angeles Times the discussion had nothing to do with Walton's job security and he'll finish the season as the team's coach "unless something drastic happens, which it won't".
"They're playing like they're the best team in the Eastern Conference so far", James said of the Raptors. "But they competed throughout the whole game".
"It's going to be very, very hard to make a game out of that when you're trying to expend so much energy trying to get back in it".
Prior to tipoff, the Lakers learned they would not have to contend with former NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard and his season averages of 26.1 points, 7.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.0 steals, as Toronto coach Nick Nurse announced his star forward was being held out with soreness in his left foot.
UNICEF warns impeding aid delivery in Yemen will lead to starvation
The UN says about 14 million people, or half Yemen's population, could soon be on the brink of starvation in a man-made disaster. The war has killed more than 10,000 people and displaced 3 million others, according to United Nations aid agencies.
One way to keep him fresh is not to play him on consecutive nights, Nurse said, adding, "I don't think we've decided how long that's gonna be yet".
James said that the team will use the loss as a learning experience.
"Yeah, but you still learn from it", James said.
Once they took control, Toronto never gave it back.
"They just came out and hit us right in the mouth. We got to get better". But you never let the outside noise get to you and if you do that, that can cause you problems.
